Ivana Karásková comments for EUobserver on the disappearance of Ye Jianming, Miloš Zeman's advisor on economic cooperation with China.

The disappearance of Ye Jianming, chairman of China Energy Company Ltd (CEFC), and news of his investigation by China’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection has sent shock waves across the Czech media.

Ye has been a honorary advisor on economic cooperation with China to the Czech president Milos Zeman – who on many occasions welcomed Chinese investment to the country and has sometimes been criticised for his openly pro-Chinese attitude from by various political parties and journalists.

Clueless as the Czech media have been on Ye Jianming’s fate, the most surprising announcement came from the president’s office.

Karásková: This time the trouble came to a Chinese company, but what happens when a storm hits one of the Czech investments in the Peoples’ Republic of China? In that case supporting the Czech president hardly seems to matter.
